SUN RA - PHIL NIBLOCK: The Magic Sun
In the mid '60s (that's all the information we get) Phil Niblock made this experimental film with the Arkestra, very close-up and all in negative - leaving interesting mostly abstract shapes flickering and shifting. The music by the New York Sun Ra Arkestra of the time (now in 5.1 surround) is great, classic mid 60's Ra. In addition there is a gallery of phots accompanied by four short pieces by Le Sonny: a statement - about life, music, his destiny, and three poems from the Immeasurable equation, accompanied by Ra on electric piano. About 40 minutes total.
